Join Artist in Residence, Fiona Clark, for a workshop about creating public art and then be part of an art installation at West Windsor Arts.
Space is limited so sign up today: Public Art 101 with Fiona Clark
The workshop will begin with an info session on the ins and outs of creating public art: working with organizations, limitations that the artist may be given and possible parameters for the finished piece. Fiona has painted everything from garbage cans to sides of buildings and will share her knowledge and experiences with the group.
The second half of the workshop is all about creating an installation for WWA. Participants will be painting acrylic panels that will line the walkways on either the front or back of the building. We will be upcycling acrylic shields (remember COVID) and turning them into beautiful, eye-catching, colorful panels. Each participant will participate in painting a panel under the instructions of Fiona. The panels will become part of an installation at the arts center.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have your art publicly displayed!
About the artist:
Fiona Clark is a New Jersey based artist who specializes in bright, bold, colorful abstracts that spark joy. Whether that is through ceramics, paintings or public art. Fiona began her signature style of drawings in 2001, as a way to accompany lettering she was exploring at the time. Over the years, she has developed lines, colors and forms as a means to express herself and interpret the world around her. She graduated cum laude in 2007 from the University of Hartford Art School with a BFA concentration in Visual Communication Design, minors in Photography and Art History. She moved to New York City post graduation to pursue a career in graphic design and worked as a digital art director in the fashion industry for 10 years before deciding to pursue art full-time. Fiona moved back to New Jersey in 2020 and now creates out of her home studio.
